So, I have a thumbs up, thumbs down thought Cafemom...

I'm thinking that the only person allowed to vote up or down should be the one that ASKED the question. How about it?

  • Then they'd go back to getting reports everytime someone got buttsore over something they read. Downvoting lets people vent their frustrations without crying to cm over every little thing.

  • Bad. People would personally attack the person who asked because they would know that they were the one voted them down. The system works. If I don't agree with someone's answer, I should be allowed to vote them down, and they should be able to vote me down if they don't like my answer....

  • naa I like voting up or down, gives me power..

  • Bad idea. The person asking the question will get a lot of bashing if they vote someone down. I like to be able to vote down knuckleheaded advice or people that are being plain mean for no reason.

  • That sounds like how it works over on Yahoo answers, I think. I like the way CM has done Answers- you can vote down a bad/mean/horribly incorrect answer, and vote up all the ones you like.

  • nope, we would all know who it was and even the asker would be skeptical as to decide if she should vote it down or get emailed or bashed for doing so
